Bishop Soto Proclaims Church's Teaching on Homosexuality

If there was any doubt that California Bishop Jaime Soto would reaffirm the Catholic Church's constant teaching on homosexuality during his address to National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries - it was quickly dispelled.

In a compassionate and reasoned presentation of the Church's teaching, Bishop Soto reminded us that Bishops are truly the successors to the apostles. During the course of his speech Bishop Soto said:

"Sexual intercourse, outside of the marriage covenant between a man and a woman, can be alluring and intoxicating but it will not lead to that liberating journey of true self-discovery and an authentic discovery of God. For that reason, it is sinful. Sexual relations between people of the same sex can be alluring for homosexuals but it deviates from the true meaning of the act and distracts them from the true nature of love to which God has called us all. For this reason, it is sinful."
